Two-handed movements require more neural effort as people grow older

A team of researchers from Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (Leipzig) has discovered that the age-related decline in bilateral anti-phase movement is linked to differences in alpha and beta neural activity. Among the researchers was Vadim Nikulin, Leading Research Fellow of the Centre for Cognition & Decision Making at HSE University. […]

Links to genetic disorders found in walking patterns

Rutgers researchers have linked the genetic disorders Fragile X and SHANK3 deletion syndrome—both linked to autism and health problems—to walking patterns by examining the microscopic movements of those wearing motion-sensored sneakers. The method, published in a new study in the journal Scientific Reports, detects gait problems 15 to 20 years before their clinical diagnosis and […]
